collection act because it is going to make online businesses the tax collectors for the nation. and as the "wall street journal" pointed out in an editorial today called "the internet sales tax rush," it actually puts brick and mortar, puts the internet businesses at a disadvantage to brick and mortar businesses in terms of requiring -- making requirements on online businesses to collect taxes for transactions that the online businesses would not have to. and for a state like mine of new hampshire where we do not have a sales tax, this is also particularly onerous and really tramples on the decision that new hampshire has made to not have a sales tax. but most importantly, where we stand right now with the -- with the bill pending on the floor, you know, so many times there is so much around here that happens that does not go through regular order, and yet we have been talking on both sides of the aisle how important it is that when we have a major piece of legislation, which certainly this is, that we must go through regular order and that you just heard from the chairman of t
